Growing spiritually together as a family is one of INSPIRE’s highest values and priorities. Below are listed the important milestones your children will experience as they grow up at INSPIRE.

BAPTISM

Baptism is a really big deal at INSPIRE. It was a big deal to Jesus (He commanded it) – it’s a big deal to us! We recognize the practice of baptism as a wonderful, mysterious, inclusive event in a person’s life. Thus, we gladly celebrate and practice baptism for ALL ages, and embrace both sprinkling and full water immersion (depending upon age, circumstances, and preference).
Though we are happy to accommodate private ceremonies where circumstances dictate, it is our desire to celebrate baptism within the context of worship amidst the family of INSPIRE.

FIFTH GRADE COMMUNION

During a student’s fifth-grade year special instruction will be given for their First Communion. 

It is very important at INSPIRE that students understand and revere the significance of communion prior to receiving it. In order to teach them this, kids will take part in a 2-week class that will teach them what communion is all about.  It is a very special moment involving the whole family and the ceremony will occur on Maundy Thursday during the Holy Week services leading up to Easter Sunday.

THIRD GRADE BIBLES

At the beginning of the third-grade year on Reformation Day (last Sunday of October), our children will receive their first personal Bible.
When possible, special instruction will be given to these students during their Children’s Church time prior to receiving their Bible. This moment will be celebrated within the context of worship among the larger INSPIRE family.
